Abstract

Renal disease is occasionally diagnosed in cattle. Most often, renal disease is bilateral and medical therapy is the treatment of choice. Nephrectomy may be performed in selected cases where a single kidney is primarily involved and medical therapy is unsuccessful. This surgery can be performed under field settings, and these cattle can remain productive members of the herd.
